      Worst company and full of politics

      Pros

      One pro I could think of is, You'll have projects to do. So work. Xentrix opt-in for lots of outsourcing work from bigger studios so everyone is usually pretty busy throughout the year. Just to add on that, For most of the projects, You won't be getting credit on the movie/tv series because they are indirectly outsourced meaning Movie/TV Series creator/producer outsource the project to some mid-level company and then those mid-level company again outsource some of the work to Xentrix (atleast for the most of the projects). So you won't be getting any credit to put on IMDB or anywhere else. Another pro could be that This company will never close/shut down/go bankrupt. They get Hollywood outsourced shows and earn money in dollars but they don't even pay industry standard rupee money to artists. So Xentrix make good profit every single year so This company will never go bankrupt.

      Cons

      Woah. A lot to tell. Let me try putting most important things in a polite way. Short story: 1. Management/HR/Production are super bad. 2. Too much Politics (Supervisors and Leads) 3. Work/Personal life balance = 0 (Be ready for 70-80 hours a week work) Long Story: 1. It's a management driven company. Meaning that the people who are top of the chain will do things as they please. One could argue that this is with every company but I added this point because in Xentrix Management will destroy every bit of energy that an artist has and you won't be able to do anything at all. HR/Production will just follow the orders from the management. For instance, my final settlement (last paycheck) was given to me after 5 months of my last working day in Xentrix because I took a sick day off when I was on notice period. So I took just one day off during my notice period because I was not well and they hold my last 1.5 months work salary for more than 5 months. 2. Politics. Most of the leads and supervisors in the studio are full with lots of politics and favoritism. Although I don't support favoritism, I can understand favoritism that some people like to work with a certain type. BUT that was not the case in Xentrix. Most of the supervisors (but not all) don't like the people who ask questions. (there are 2 exceptions). So basically if you can lick the shoes of the bosses, You will certainly get increments and promotions, Regardless of your work. 3. Work/Personal life balance, It's NONE. You will work 50-60 hours a day during a normal week and during the deadline of the project, this number will grow to 70-80 hours a week. There's no comp off. There's no bonus. Just a speech by CEO/COO where he will say that everyone worked really hard and everyone claps for him for no reason. There will not be any compensation/bonus/comp off for the extra work hours that you put.

      Pros

      Out of my 10 years of experience, I have learnt the most in this company. The office space is nice Many cultural and sports activities happen round the year

      Cons

      The core management team is horrendous. They are very arrogant. You won't get leaves even if you have leave balance. Average working hours are 12-15 hours per day and you have to report on-time the next day, else you will get a late mark and get salary deductions.
